Ranjith's latest directorial venture Kadal Kadannu Oru Mathukutty is one of the most-hyped movies of the year 2013. Prior to its release, the ensemble cast of Malayalam superstars has soared up the filmgoers' expectations to sky high. But the movie seems to have failed to meet the expectations.
Mathukutty (Mammootty) is an un-employed NRI, who is settled with his family in Germany. He is assigned with a responsibility to invite the leading superstars in Malayalam - Mohanlal and Dileep, for a cultural show that is being organised by the German Malayalis. Mathukutty comes to Kottayam to invite the stars. Later on, Mathukutty gets involved in public affairs too.
On reaching Kerala, Mathukkutty meets his old flame, Rosy. She is one of the chorus singers in the church. Mathukutty and his native friends goes to meet the leading stars in the industry. They meet actor Dileep on the sets of his upcoming movie. All are surprised to meet a star so close and express their gratitude to Mathukutty for getting them such a chance.
With some good and punching humour, the movie happens to end in a good way. Kadal Kadannu Oru Mathykutty also has some good songs in it. Of them, one song has been very much acclaimed by the viewers. Rest of the cast have done justice to their roles. But they seem to be unnoticed as the whole story revolves around only Mathukutty.
Kadal Kadannu Oru Mathukkutty is produced by Prithviraj, Santhosh Sivan and Shaji Natesan under the banner of August Cinemas.

Kadal Kadannu Oru Mathukutty
Ranjith and Mammootty have rocked the viewers with the last offering Pranchiyettan And the Saint. But they have failed to repeat the same magic in Kadal Kadannu Oru Mathukutty. Especially, Ranjith's magic is missing throughout the film.
Mammootty's new look in the movie is the main highlight. He has done justice to his role. The moment when Mammootty and Mohanlal make their screen presence, everything goes on a high.
Though Dileep is seen only in a cameo role, the film has showed the full potential of the actor. With some good humour, the actor has maintained his usual style of attracting his viewers.
Nedumudi Venu is seen enacting the role of father as seen in his previous movies. He has done justice to his role.
Two superstars - Dileep and Mohanlal are seen in cameo roles in Kadal Kadannu Oru Mathukutty.
The film has a huge star cast, which includes Nedumudi Venu, Balachandra Menon, Siddique, Harisree Ashokan, Suresh Krishna, P Balachandran, Balachandran Chullikad, Prem Prakash, Muthumani, Krishna Prabha and Kaviyoor Ponnamma.
Kadal Kadannu Oru Mathukutty is shot both in Kerala and Germany.
The movie has been rendered beautifully by the director. With some good humour and dialogue delivery, the movie is worth. All charcaters have done justice to their roles. Music is average and has been composed by Shahabas Aman.
The dragging narration in the second half of the movie bores the audience. The climax is predictable and lacks a punch.
Kadal Kadannu Oru Mathukutty is an above average movie. With some good humour and star presence, the movie is sure to be a family entertainer.
